On behalf of myself and our Board of Directors, welcome to St. John's!  My heartfelt thanks to our wonderful parishioners for all the love and hard work that has made our St. John's a truly remarkable parish.  Come and enjoy our fellowship each and every Sunday and Holy Days throughout the year.  We at St. John's welcome everyone to come and participate with us to embrace our beautiful Orthodox religion and heritage.  ~  Carol Gabor Feduik, Church President

" We sing praises unto the Lord"  Come upstairs to the choir loft on Sunday mornings and join the mixed choir as we sing the responses to the Divine Liturgy. You will feel renewed physically and spiritually!  All are welcome to join us for choir rehearsals on Monday evenings at 7pm.  Singing praises to the Lord makes the lungs strong, the heart happy, and the soul fulfilled!  ~  John Galpin, Music Director


To all the families who had the courage, dedication, and faith to travel from the Carpathian Mountains of eastern Europe and build a new life here in the United States.  That new life here included their desire to come together as Orthodox Christians and build a house of worship where their love of God would continue to grow for generations.  It is to the love and hard work of those families, and their children's, children's, children, that this website is dedicated.  May God continue to grant us many more blessed years.
